My grandma always makes a point over the holidays to state that women are the planners in the family and the reason why family holidays still exist. Though this is a tad bit dramatic, I kind of agree! Now that I'm living with my boyfriend I can't help but notice how few things men actually take the time to plan -- they're so carefree and without any concerns for the outcome. I think every one of his text starts with "Hey Man" and ends with "See you in an hour" - that's it. Plain and simple, the whole conversation is probably no longer than 6 texts long. If you put a girl in charge of making a solitary plan she'll take it from start to finish (roughly 40 texts by the time she coordinates time, location, outfit, etc) and will plan every minute until the event's borderline being no longer fun.
I titled this post "We Come Running" after a popular Youngblood Hawke song because I'm still pissed I missed the concert this week! I walked in the door Monday night and my boyfriend casually mentions how he found out they had a show that night. I immediately interject and say "What!? WHEN? Can we still make it?!" ... There goes the female planner in me... only to sadly be told it was about to begin at the very moment I found out. I then asked why he didn't text me while I was at work and he simply says "I don't know." Needless to say I gave him a good deal of sarcastic shit for keep this awesome piece of information from me, but I just I now just have more tie to build up the suspense of finally seeing them. =)

Brooklyn is without a doubt the best place for thrifting and vintage clothes, which I think is common knowledge now (since I've posted about it quite frequently over the past few months). But, what's new on the thrifting/vintage scene in BK are the thrifting crawls! My friend Sharon and I took part in one two weeks ago (sorry I forgot about these pictures so I'm just posting now) and It was a pretty cool experience ---You can download the crawl's app which guides you from store to store to check everything out and take advantage of the special promotions. I didn't walk away with anything too cool to showcase but it was the experience that was fun and worth blogging about.
